First a brief profile: Dx late Feb 2018, PSA 168, numerous mets to bones but none in organs or lymph nodes. Started Firmagon injections immediately. Testosterone undetectable within a week. Started 6 cycles of docetaxel early April 2018. Have finished 5 cycles, 6th in mid July. Had Neulasta injections after cycles 2 - 5 and will have again next cycle. PSA dropped to 0.8 by 3 weeks ago (will be measured again in 2 days time). ALP (was elevated), ALT and GGT all well within normal range. LDH a little elevated since 3rd cycle of chemo. Ferritin and B12 both double the upper limit but MO says it's OK because it's from the cancer and the treatment (!). Not entirely sure about that but will monitor them and seek further advice if they don't go down after chemo is finished.
My wife and I have researched a lot about what to do after chemo and from posts here and research papers it seems that the following are all meds I should take: atorvastatin, celebrex, metformin, zolandronic acid and quercetin. But what doses are recommended? The papers don't detail what doses are best - especially when taken together. We've read that they work well together and sometimes require lower doses because of their synergistic effects. It seems to me that the lowest effective dose are the best way to go, but what are they?
If anyone could give us some advice we would really appreciate it.
